Before I begin the review, do not get this laptop at its current price ($999), it is a huge rip off. I was able to get it when it was much much cheaper. I dont get why walmart assumes they can sell this model for that much money now. However, in terms of the laptop, this thing is AMAZING! Awesome keyboard that feels like a keyboard you would find on an expensive high end gaming laptop. The screen is gorgeous and super bright (144hz). You might be a little skeptical because it is an unfamiliar brand name but what do you have to lose? It is made of quality parts and comes with a 2 year warranty. The only bad thing is the battery on this thing. It will only last you a good 2 hours. But that is expected as there is lots of things to power on this device. Overall, great laptop, you won't be sorry you bought it, just not for the price point it is on now. I suggest waiting to see if it drops back down again.

Great Laptop for the price!
Great laptop for the price. If you're wondering about the specs with a Geforce GTX 1050 and an Intel core i5 it runs most games around 50 to 90 fps depending on what settings you're set at. It runs fortnite exceptionally well at around 50 to 80 fps on epic settings but if you turn the settings down it can get to in the 100 range fps. The keyboard is beautiful and the RGB can be customized to almost any color of choice.
Replaced my 5yr old Asus i5-3210m with this
Great buy for $499. I'm not a gamer, but appreciate the screen and build quality for the money. I added an 8GB Ram module from Crucial (other vendors work as well), just match the specs and you will be ok. I put a 500GB Samsung 970evo in the slot next to the 128GB (which I removed). The Samsung ssd and the fact that the other slot's faster, speeds up read/write 4-5x.
Great bang-for-the-buck in this price range
I ended up buying one of these on sale during the holidays because it was such a great deal. There was nothing else like it in this price range. I've purchased probably 20 windows laptops and 4 mac laptops before. This is a lotta bang-for-the-buck: 8th gen i5, SSD + regular drive, 144Hz Monitor, GeForce GTX graphics chip, rainbow mechanical keyboard. As a bonus, its loaded with every kind of port and slot you could want. Very happy so far with this purchase. Everything worked out of the box - gaming speed and graphics detail is a nice step-up from a 5th Gen i7 HP its replacing. Build Quality appears similar to the HP, Dell, and Lenovo's we have in the $600-$800 range.
Super nice mid level gaming laptop
Very surprising given the somewhat negative reviews and coverage the Overpowered lineup has. I had moderate expectations that were greatly exceeded. For the price it would be very difficult to top it for quality and functionality. Good features: 2 year warranty Very nice display Slick keyboard with separate row of function keys, nice lighting Good solid trackpad Solid build small bezel around the display. Lots of vents. Overpowered app manages performance and led lighting nicely. Solid internal components. Ami bios very recent. Blend of ssd and hard drive is fast out of box. Windows and display driver updates took less than 20 minutes to complete. Very little crapware mostly the Windows supplied stuff that can be deleted easily. Nice printed card showing all the features. Dedicated key for fan control. In summary at $500 or so it is a steal. Should be excellent as a productivity pc and a moderate gaming rig.
Amazing Laptop. Would buy this again.
The 1050 graphics card gives me amazing performance for all the games I play. The keyboard is nice and comfortable when you get used to it. Everything is perfect for this laptop for only 599. There is no other deal you can find that is cheaper than this. The build is amazing and it is awesome how they made a 15.6 inch laptop feel so slim and sleek. Having the rainbow keyboard and many styles/features to the keyboard is so cool and fun.
Odd balance but Great
its a good product but a weird balance the 1050 cannot push the full 144 fps that is on this panel but for the average user and light to moderate gamer like myself this will work very well for these use cases and watching videos and browsing the web was a breeze with the "mechanical keyboard" and track pad using windows precision drivers. over all a great system and look foward to seeing what else "OP" comes up with.
Pretty decent laptop aside from the single 16gb RAM stick I would recommend upgrading to duel channel ram be sure to take out the goldkey ram and put in 2 8gb sticks of ram from the same manufacture. Be sure the ram your buying isn't corrupted or ells you'll experience blue screens of death. Other than that its a good laptop. Loving mine. Be warned tho before opening the laptop your confident in voiding the warranty sticker.
Broken wireless card
Got the laptop and it worked fine... For the first 30 minutes... The first thing to worry me is that it was using onboard Intel graphics and not the discrete 1050 until you go in their software and change it. After around 30 minutes while installing Nvidia drivers the wireless card just stopped working completely. I am very computer smart and I'm almost certain it's a dead wireless card, so now I have to go through support in hopes that I didn't just waste $600.. It also has spots for an Ezra ssd and another ram channel. But you can't get to it without voiding the warranty... Terrible design behind this thing
Spend the extra money to get something worthwhile
When I first got the computer I was very impressed, but the more I use it, the more I have been let down by it. Intermittently from time to time, my screen will go black and sometimes it will come back on, or else I have to restart the computer...on top of that, playing PUBG, the computer frequently crashes on me or freezes and I again have to restart the computer. Wish I would have kept my old laptop at this point.
